The Abel Tasman region is truly extraordinary, and we love to see the sense of surprise on visitors faces when they witness its breathtaking beauty and abundant wildlife.

In the spirit of manaakitanga (hospitality) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship), we welcome visitors to enjoy the national park in all its glory, but ask that you leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but memories. The Abel Tasman holds a special place in our hearts, in those of our ancestors, and we hope that future generations of locals and visitors can continue to enjoy it in the same way that we do. 

As a visitor to our extraordinary place, every activity you take part in contributes to the protection of our beautiful environment, and we thank you for your support in ensuring we remain a sustainable visitor destination, both for now, and in years to come.
